Hi everyone, welcome to the mistress’s dungeon!
This LJ is mainly intended to be an archive for my written works – both original fiction and fan fiction - as well as a place to discuss them with whoever might be interested in them.
This will also be a place for random rants and thoughts about my diverse fandoms and interests.
And if you're wondering at the layout, that's why:
Hi everyone, welcome to the mistress’s dungeon!
I may be much more similar to Sasuke than I thought. And now, that's a disturbing thought. ^_^: I'm not solving my love/hate relationship with this character any time soon I'm afraid. XD But, ah, rping him makes me like him more. ^_^ He sort of... Grew on me. XD
I'm loving this season of Desperate Housewives!! Bree... <3 I'm falling in love with her a little bit more each episode. XD When I think that she used to be my least favourite character. ^_^
Bones season 7 is so far proving to be the season that should never have been. >_< Who writes these scripts seriously? Even the actors don't buy it, and it shows. T_T Which says quite a lot when you know what they capable of doing with a decent script. ^_^; Hopefully thing will get better? *hopeful*
Glee is... Surprisingly good! They just have to break my heart a little bit more every episode and I love it! <3
Ringer is getting better. I might be biased though, as I'm mainly watching it because of Sarah Michelle Gellar. ^_^;
I've been reading the Hunger Games series and, well, it does have something to it... The first book was amazing, the other two were good, but I kept waiting for a bigger story. I'll still go see the movies though. I have this mad love for Jennifer Lawrence and I've seen the trailers, I'm sure she'll be amazing! <3
I'll confess, I went to see Breaking Dawn, and well... Yeah... *shifty eyes*
I'm also getting back into the ASOIAF fandom. I have very mixed views on Dance, but, but, but.... If there's one thing to be said for that book: ok, sue me, shoo me, laugh all you want, it accomplished a thing that I thought could never happen, I'm absolutely totally in love with Jon! I didn't use to care much about him, but the Jon in that book... *dissolves into fangirl incoherency*
And I find myself wanting to write Sansa/Sandor and Jaime/Brienne more than ever. Hehehe... I just might someday. ^_~
Gee, one week later and I still can't believe my luck ! Can't believe that I'm actually in London, and that I'm gonna be there for a year, and that I'm really, really gonna get to be a drama student. It just sounds too good to be true ! :-)
Yeah that's just the sceptic in me talking, the rest of me is just fucking happy!
Happy, yes, but I don't know... It's just been so crazy these last few days, running around, buying furniture, doing this and that, I just wish I could have one minute to myself to sit and think about what's happening to me; you know, as wonderful as it is. Because as lucky as I am, it's still a pretty big change, and this year is going to be kinda decisive for me, and I'm just so badly afraid of screwing it up, because how often in your life do you get opportunities like that? Aaargh ! Yeah, I know, mostly, I just need to calm down and relax a little, and eventually things will start to fall into place. Is it stupid if I say that I expected to be only happy, that I didn't foresee that I'd be a little scared too (and by a little I mean a lot)?
I've started the last volume of the Dark Tower, I'm halfway trough it and my, it's just so, so sad. T_T
Sometimes, life can be good, really good.
I'm preparing myself for auditions and I'm scared shitless. There's so much to do and so little time. I know I can do it though. Anyway, even if I don't make it this year, it feels good to have a purpose again. And I missed acting, I missed it so much.
They tell me that I should go with an English playwriter, but I don't know... I'm redescovering Lorca and I think this is what I'm looking for, I'm not sure. It is a delicate choice. I just can't seem to find the right female character for me. The texts I have so far, are good, but it's like there's something missing, like there should be something more.
I know, once again, my obsession for stong female character is striking. Sighs.
I had a great time in London. I love this city so much ! I did some shopping, of course, how not ! And make-up, make-up, make-up, make-up ! I did a huuuge M.A.C haul, bought some shoes, and a dress ! And... Sales ! At Selfridges, on my last day ! I want the Vera Wang Perfume, the Princess one, it smells soooo good ! And the packaging is so cuuuute! It's THE perfume I've been looking for all these years!
And everyone complimented me on my new hat. *beams*
I'm still working on the bloody fic, but there's so much I have to catch on, in RL, I mean ! Anyway, I think I have the second part almost worked out which means Part III will be even more complicated. Sighs.
Oh, and I found a Raistlin/Caramon strory. An amazingly written one. *Happy* I mean, it still makes me shiver, it was so poweful. It's so heartwrenching, so sad, so crual, so... I don't know, so them. They have one of the most fascinating relationship I've ever read about.
My throat is dry, I need to work on my breathing, on my voice. AAArff, I'll never be ready !! >_<
I also have a Kurosawa waiting for me on my night table. I've been wanting to see the 7 samourais movie ever since I read the Last Samourai by Helen DeWitt.
I guess I'm getting used to it, having time for myself and doing the things I enjoy. And I love my family, my mum is the only person I know who can use words like '"conoclaste" and "matutinale" first thing in the morning. And there's something to be said about intellectual debate. That's one of the things I love the most about my parents, the fact that I can talk to them about anything without fearing to shock them, and the fact that they always listen to me and my opinions, even when they disagree.
I read La nuit des enfants rois by Bernard Lenric and was sorely disappointed. I've been hearing so much good about this book, and in the end, it was just blah! Maybe it has to do with the fact that I was about twelve the first time I heard about it and that the person who told me about it was about my age. I certainly would have enjoyed it more when I was younger. I mean no offense to the writer, but my, it was so badly written. At first I thought it was due to a bad translation, but no, it is actually that bad. And don't get me started on female characters... *sighs* Well, at least it was a short read.
I need to get my hands on the Name of the Wind, I've been hearing a lot of good things about that book. I read an extract on the author's website and it looked promising. And the here is an actor, among other things. I haven't read any good Fantasy books in ages.
I wanted to burrow L'échiquier du mal but they didn't have it at the library *grumbles*. Also, it gave me the worst nightmares of my life the last time I tried to read it. But I won't be a chicken about it.
Mmm, I'll have to finish the Vampires seried by Rice. It's weird, because I love these books, but I don't seem to be able to read them in one go, which is rather strange for me.
I also have the last volume of the Dark Tower series waiting for me, but I don't want to read it before I move to London, so...
Ah, Lestat, it will be.
And I never thought I's say this, but I'm getting tired of Shakespeare. At the same time, I only have three tragedies left before i'm done... Who said obsessive? Gosh, I need to read something else or my head will explode! I'll have to do a Buffy marathon or something. There's only so much concentration and seriousness my brain can take, even if it's something I like.
I found the Traité de la ponctuation française at the library today. The nice lady who was besides me when I found it threw me a weird look when I started to squeal over it. I can't really blame her. ^_^;
Mwahahahaha! My precious...
Drafts, outlines, redmarkers, headaches and plot polishing, how I have missed you!
I know I can do it! Yeah... ^_^;
So, there's only one thing left to say: Let's do it!
Happy happy happy
